Taken By Its Beauty
DBX, Aston Martin’s first luxury SUV, is commencing on an extensive testing programme, being put through its paces along a demanding Welsh Rally stage, a nod to Aston Martin’s new St Athan production facility in the Vale of Glamorgan. The unique nature of DBX in the Aston Martin range means it requires a dedicated test programme; one that features new processes, procedures and standards that reflect its all-purpose role. So, while it will perform with the verve and poise of a true Aston Martin, its dynamic envelope has to extend into areas previously off-limits to the marque’s sporting roots. Naturally this includes impressive multi-terrain and towing capabilities as befits a state-of-the-art SUV.
